What are some words/terms that architects have made up when discussing their work? I'm interested in how words get invented/manipulated to suit architectural discourse.
Orhan Ayyüce's "gin-fizz urbanism"
Steven Fleming's "bike-washing"
If possible, please credit the inventor of the term and/or where you found it.
My book The Hamptons Dictionary has a solid collection of language related to high-end residential architecture and construction.
How is it that Quondam has not yet posted in this thread?
I've recently invented:
"archikomori" - to describe the withdrawal of arch students (although I suppose some professionals are also stuck there too) into studio culture
"casting-couch architecture" - the process by which an architect or firm is propositioned to do something unpleasant by an elite client with either the hopes of future commissions (e.g., Dillsco tearing down Folk Museum) or to avoid risk of being discarded
Ooh, that Hamptons dicitonary looks promising. I just downloaded the kindle edtion.
i always like Facadomy.

Gregory, I've made up only a few words, the first, for example, chronosomatics, but that's not specific to architecture. The next two, that I can think of off the top of my head are:
reenactionary 1 : being or exhibiting the qualities of a reenactment 2 : the philosophical or theoretical notion that reenactment underlies much of humanity's cultural and ritualistic traditions as well as humanity's artistic expressions 3 : one of the foremost characterists of late 20th century tourism
architecturism 1 a : act, practice, or process of architecture b : manner of action or behavior specific to architecture 2 : abnormal state or condition resulting from an excess of architecture 3 a : doctrine, theory, or cult of architecture b : adherence to a system or a class of architectural principles 4 : characteristic or peculiar feature or trait of architecture
Quondam, a Latin and English word, has acquired a number of specific to architecture meanings which come and go, sometimes pertain and sometimes not:
quondam 1 : an enormous online collage 2 : some incompletely architectural museum 3 : architecture as delivery of content (in the enfilade slash labyrinth style) 4 : a practice hypermuseum 5 : the architecture [publishing] domain of Stephen Lauf 6 : a virtual place in architectural history 7 : a premier unbuilding that continually undoes itself 8 : the first virtual museum of architecture online 9 : once, at one time, formerly; at times, sometimes, once in a while; some day, one day (in the future)
I'm not sure I'm that big on 'inventing' terms, but I do like coming up with titles:

New working title: Some Titles become (non-existent) Links.
Nothing like taking a virtual dump to succinctly address the issue at hand.
Miles, it mostly seems that all you ever do is take a dump.
Quondam, maybe someday you'll learn the difference between a nugget of fertilizer and an overflowing sewage treatment plant.
Miles, I do know the difference: I'm a nugget of fertilizer and you are the overflowing sewage treatment plant. You see Miles, your comments are mostly toxic, where as my comments get people to think.
Quondam, I have tried to understand your posts, but there's so much obfuscation I gave up. Sorry, brother.
Which clearly explains your widely ignored weekly dated defecations here and here, here, here and here, etc., etc., etc., etc., etc.
Oh, look - here's one that someone posted a response to. Oh, wait. It was only you. Sorry.
MIles, getting people to think and getting people to respond are not the same thing. Like SneakyPete just proved, my posts got him to think. He tried to understand, but he wasn't able to. Nonetheless, my post got him to think.
That's a bit like putting random words together, posting the gibberish, and then claiming it makes people think. I want to understand what you are trying to say, but you seem to delight in betraying the system of communication which would enable you to get your ideas across. That's not a failing of mine, and frankly I don't appreciate the underlying insinuation.
SneakyPete, but I don't put random words together, nor post gibberish. Yet I did get you to think I "seem to delight in betraying the system of communication which would enable you to get your ideas across." Gosh, that sounds downright Tafurian of me.
Carry on playing with your blocks in your tower, then.
it would appear to me the difference between the nugget and plant is entirely in quantity rather than quality. one should also perhaps consider the location and frequency in which one applies their fertilizer, which is not addressed in the nugget/plant analogy.
is 'tafurian' a word?
apparently 'tafuria' could be mid-19th century samoan for 'a rocky place in the sea'
Oh, Amelia. I adore these guys in so many ways but I'm really sorry for this thread. It's a train wreck.
Orhan, I don't think magpie architecture was in anything I linked to? I think nam did.
I'm still thinking but can't come up with any good terms. I had a professor (Kirby Lockard) who referred to suburban sprawl as "one-story peanut butter"; I always thought that was quite evocative.
curtkram, I always consider the location and frequency in which I apply the 'fertilizer'.
'Tafurian' is certainly not a word I invented; google provides numerous prior examples. The notion of "betraying the system of communication which would enable you to get your ideas across," however, does fit many aspects of Tafuri's modus operandi.
If this thread became a 'train wreck', blame Miles's unnecessary toxin. My initial post was on topic and indeed a response to Gregory. Miles then came in with his usual put-down...
Quondam, funny how easy you are to offend, I said more with 13 words than you did with 2,339.
Hey! Maybe that's why.
Donna, if you've forgotten how testosterone works Angus will remind you in a couple of years.
If you're going to talk the talk you'd better be able to walk the walk.
Miles, that's the point, you purposely posted here today to offend me, and this isn't the place to do that.
Dude, get over yourself already. You really don't have to piss yourself every time some takes a point of view contrary to your own. Especially over such verbal diarrhea as Reenactionary Bilocating Architecturism.
Miles, more to the point, you're the one that has to get over me. You're obsessed with me, and that's odd because I don't care about you at all. It's like you're constantly trying to get my attention so that I notice you. And if you really didn't care about me, you'd ignore me. Are you in love with me or something?
@Donna and #Orhan actually toasteroven was the one who linked to the article re: magpie architecture
Quondrum, don't flatter yourself. I just have a low tolerance for bullshit and tend to point it out when I see it.
Miles, it's more like you use 'bullshit' as an excuse/denial of your own low (mental) tolerance. Like you said about your leaving architecture school, the professor's bullshit and that thesis had be drawn ink on vellum were your reasons for leaving, whereas it was more than likely your own fault for leaving, your own lack of tolerance. Virtually every architect has had to deal with some professor's bullshit and had to drawn in a way that they weren't particularly keen on, but they persevered, they tolerated, and they became architects. And they didn't try to project their own deficiencies onto others. So, whenever I see you calling out 'bullshit', it's usually you that is doing the bullshitting.
Quondam, I literally grew up in an architect's office. My single parent father was an architect and we lived the various offices he had beginning with one he shared with another architect. I was surrounded by architects and draftsmen every day. I went to job sites with my father, did office chores and started working construction at 11. By the time I got to RISD I had more real-world experience in architecture and construction than some of the profs.
Which is how I knew that isometric murals were bullshit - my farher produced at least half-a-dozen large scale interior and exterior perspective renderings for each presentation, eye-level views that allow the viewer to imagine they are in the scene. Can't do that with an isometric. If isos are so great why aren't they the presentation technique of choice today? And I didn't leave, I switched into and graduated with a degree in industrial design.
Keep slinging bullshit. Maybe someday you'll actually hit something other than the fan that's blowing on you.
For the encyclopedia, Quondam, do you think this qualifies as Reenactionary Bilocating Architecturism? Or, the site and building has to be identical although there is a strong inspirational connection? Can you show more precise example as to what you mean?
Thanks to toaster I now know magpie architecture.
so, uh (head scratching), isometrics made you leave architecture school?
like, you got angry at drawings? and changed majors?
Orhan, that image seems to fit the "description", doesn't it? There's reenactment, there's bilocation, and there's architecturism. I was always curious where that building is, and what it looks like finished.
The title "Reenactionary Bilocating Architecturism" comes from the fictional The Odds of Ottopia. It's the title of the paper St. Catherine de Ricci, Louis I. Kahn and Albert Barnes presented at the Horace Trumbauer Architecture Fan Club Convention (2005). The paper centered on the positive aspects of two Barnes Foundation locations. As you know, the new Barnes Foundation on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia is, inside at least, a reenactment of the original Barnes Foundation in Merion, PA. De Ricci, Kahn and Barnes demonstrated how both Foundation locations could be used to the great benefit of art. De Ricci's expertise is in her being an actual bilocator, Kahn is the architect of the new design (because he already designed the Dominican Motherhouse of the SIsters of St. Catherine de Ricci and he was a student of Paul Cret), and Barnes has been estactic about bilocating since the car crash.
Orhan, I like your example of Villa Savoye Take Two (or whatever it actually is), because it's real. I have no idea what's up with Paul Cret's original Barnes Foundation gallery building, but, if it's still there, then the new Barnes Foundation is also a real example of Reenactionary Bilocating Architecturism.
I meant it to mean a socio scientific branch studying people who are super bedazzled with suddenly living in the dense inner city experience. Inspired by urban orgasmics, an imaginary condition.
Sounds like an STD.
@Orhan, Donna, Quondam -- thanks for your vocab additions. Train wreck or not, it's great to see people excited by semantics!
@Miles: could you share some choice terms from "The Hamptons Dictionary"? I'd love to hear some examples.
@the user who contributed "archikomori" and "casting-couch architecture" -- to whom should I credit those terms, and how did they first come about?
